[ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, man. well, it's all in good fun. we're basically making fun of these team photos that they took. some of them are like three years -- marshawn lynch's probably 3 years-old. but we still make fun of it because it's just a funny picture. >> steve: best picture ever. >> jimmy: well, i always say if anyone has a bad picture, we just like j.r. sweezy, too -- anyway. earlier today, the seahawks turned the tables on me. [ laughter ] they tweeted out their own video of them giving me some superlatives. i got to say, it's pretty funny. watch out for the marshawn lynch cameo.
[ laughter ] he makes a cameo at the end. very subtle cameo at the end. check this out. >> all right, what are we doing? >> we're recording superlatives for jimmy fallon. >> who? jimmy falon. >> fallon. >> fallon. so he must be like a pretty big guy to be making fun of nfl players. let me see a picture of him. oh, no. he's not a big guy. he's petite. [ laughter ] okay, so you want me to go on and make fun of him? >> you know what time it is. seahawks superlatives. >> every time we play sunday night football, jimmy fallon always picks on us. but we came together and thought about this real hard and said we'll get jimmy fallon back. most likely never to get right swiped on tinder.

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: you're a stud. you're looking good, man. >> thanks. >> jimmy: thank you for coming back to our show. i was talking about you the other day, because we had michael keaton on the show. i don't even know if it made it
to air. we were talking on the commercial break. do you remember running into me on the street when i was wearing a leather jacket. >> your swag promoting yourself. jimmy gets worried that he doesn't get recognized enough. >> jimmy: no, no, no! >> he wears outfits that announce "the tonight show." >> jimmy: no, no, that's not true! >> just in case you see him at the coffee shop and you're not sure. "is that jimmy fallon?" oh, it's his jacket. it's definitely him. i know you. >> jimmy: what happened was -- it was the most embarrassing. you know, you're one of my favorite actors of all time. i got a leather jacket made. and i don't even wear leather jackets. but i figured i would wear it. they said we can engrave it and put what -- not engrave it, but whatever you do, stitching or whatever. >> right >> jimmy: and so i go, what do you want? i go, "just put saturday night live on it." >> right. >> i go, "okay, cool." yeah, you're acting like that now. so, i get it, i go, "that's kind of weird." so i was asking michael keaton if he ever walked around with a a batman t-shirt on. he was like, "no, i would never do that. thank i'm that stupid." "oh yeah, me neither." ll; but then one day -- one day out of all the days of my life, i go, "i'll throw this jacket on. why not?" i go for a walk.
and who do i run into but ethan hawke? and i go, "hey, man, how are you?" and he looked at the thing and he goes, "good for you." [ laughter ] good for me? no, i didn't do it on purpose. i was so embarrassed. i never wore it again, ever. i still have the jacket. i should give it to you. you could wear it. >> i could wear it. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah. thanks for coming on. we have lots to talk about. congrats on "seymour," by the way. a documentary you did. >> yeah. >> jimmy: that's why you were here last time. now it's on dvd and on demand and itunes, all that stuff. get it, if you haven't seen it, it's just fascinating. i had no idea about this guy. you did a great job. >> well thank you. >> jimmy: now you have a third book, this is your third book. this is a different one. "rules for a knight." first of all, how cool is it -- whoever, i don't know who made the book, but -- >> didn't they do a great job? >> jimmy: it's fantastic. >> it's so cool looking. >> jimmy: it's like you would have it in your library, the best, and a gold tassel on the bottom. it's just so rad and well done. i love it. in the book, it's just different rules like humility, gratitude, pride, friendship. >> solitude. >> jimmy: courage. >> courage.
faith, love. >> jimmy: it started as a thing you did for your kids. >> right. it started out as a deal my wife and i did for christmas. you know how you try to make rules for your house, and how it works? and we're trying to make it fun. one of the things that's difficult about parenting from a divorced vantage point is that there's this pressure -- a a lot of dads do a lot of guilty parenting, because all the kid has to say is, "well, mommy would never make me brush my teeth." you're like, "ah, throw the toothpaste out!" >> jimmy: you don't need that. let's eat some candy. yeah, yeah. then go to bed. >> so my wife and i had this idea to make rules fun. and this whole idea of rules for a knight, and it started out as seven rules and we did it as a christmas present, and then we got a little longer and my wife did the illustrations. >> jimmy: she did a great job, by the way. >> they're really cool. and they're all different birds. the idea for her was, i have
and so the idea was how to make these ideology of knights and genders. the great thing about birds is they're not really -- i mean they are masculine and feminine, but unless you're a [ laughter ] birds. >> oh, the red feather is the girl cardinal. you know? >> jimmy: you're thinking too much. just enjoy the beautiful bird. yeah. and what did your daughters say when you showed them? you made it into a book. >> i did all this stuff for them. my oldest daughter picked it up, she's like, "wow, dad, your name's pretty big. [ laughter ] is it a book about a knight or is it book about you?" [ laughter ] >> jimmy: where is the humility, dad? >> exactly. "so am i supposed to think that you're a knight, because you're not?" [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: the nicest kids, i gotta say. i love them. the cutest kids. the nicest kids. but i think it's a great book even for adults. as well, because it reminds you, oh, yeah, always good to get a reminder of what -- >> you don't usually have an
about -- you know, unless you're, i don't know, i always found it difficult to find a a reason to talk about, so why are you not supposed to lie? everybody says you're not supposed to, but why not? what's fun is for the years i have been collecting these different parables -- you know, like little zen koans a little jedi mantras. just things that you can -- you see his eyes? they just went like, jedi? >> jimmy: i'm like a little kid. >> i was getting boring and i said "jedi" and i got interesting again. >> jimmy: i'm always interested, but you say "jedi"? yeah. >> i have been collecting these parables for years, because i like them, because they don't dictate to you how you're supposed to think. they just tell you a story and you use your own brain. >> jimmy: i wrote a book too. same idea as yours, parables. "your baby's first word will be dada." it's almost the same as your book. it just says like, you know, it's pretty fun. like, "dada squeak." [ light laughter ] stuff like that. a great book. again, you want to have conversations like that with your kids. [ laughter ] we don't hang around the same book clubs.
we'll never bump into each other ever, yeah. no, i wasn't plugging my book. it is much larger than yours. [ laughter ] but i'm just saying, what does it matter? [ applause ] who is countin [ laughter ] no big deal. whatever. [ light laughter ] but this, i gotta say, this is good. the proceeds from this book go to charity. >> yeah, well, my wife and i, we have some different learning disabilities in our family. so, one of the ways we figured we could take this thing we did it for our family, share it with the world and maybe take what we make from it and help other families. >> jimmy: good for you. see that's what i'm saying. [ applause ] that's why you are who you are. always doing something different. and i never want to know what you're doing. because you didn't tell me about "boyhood", and i was like, "why didn't you?" but i'm happy you didn't. >> okay. >> jimmy: and also i was thinking about that. because at the -- in the back of the book, you have a special thanks to other knights. >> knights that i learned things from. >> jimmy: people that you learned things from like muhammad ali.
guess, right? bob dylan. >> mm-hmm. >> jimmy: i didn't see my name in here. [ laughter ] >> oh, did it not-- >> jimmy: there's a lot of names. there's actually room for more. >> you know what's strange? >> jimmy: and, you didn't run out of space. >> i find this really embarrassing for this to come up this way. there is a second draft coming out, and there will be an ode to you, an actual full-on poem for you. >> jimmy: yeah. >> you know, it's called "ballad of jimmy." >> jimmy: thank you. >> and in parentheses dada. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: not "dah-dah", "da-da" >> i think i made it too deep for a second. >> jimmy: i was thinking about this. should i be insulted, because i had you on the show a bunch of times, and i have run into you on the streets and you've insulted me and stuff. so i go, maybe i've earned something. then i was thinking, you know what? you're one of my heroes. it would be weird if you looked at me as one of your heroes. because that wouldn't make any sense. >> let me tell you something. you're quickly becomg one of my heroes. the job you're doing on this show, it's unbelievable.
tell you how many times somebody comes up to me and says, "you gotta see last night's show. you gotta youtube--" i can't tell you how often that happens, jimmy. >> jimmy: it's all because people like you come on the show and be awesome and the crowd appreciates it and we appreciate it. [ cheers and applause ] congrats to you, best to the family. i'm going to get you that jacket. >> all right. >> jimmy: here's my hero, ethan hawke, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] "rules for a knight" is available now. paul dano joins us after the break. stick around, everybody.

[ laughter ] yeah, yeah. this was like my diane sawyer moment. yeah, this is where i get something juicy out of you. >> no, that's okay. i actually have two high school friends here tonight who were in the first band i ever was in. and that band was called no gum. [ light laughter ] okay. >> it's amazing what you thought might have been cool, >> jimmy: you didn't want
anyone chewing gum watching you? >> no, no, no. one of our band mates is sort of a friend, he's funny but he's also accidentally funny. i mean, he's the guy where like, the party's not right until he's falling over something. you know, somewhere. >> jimmy: i know that guy. [ laughter ] >> and his name's andrew. >> jimmy: all too well, all too well. i know him real well, yeah. >> his name's andrew. and i think the story behind no gum is that literally, i think one of my friends said to him, "andrew, are you dumb?" and he went, "no, no gum." [ laughter ] and we were like, all right. well, that's, you know -- i think we made fun of him forever about that. and then it became cool enough to be the band name. this is also the same person, where one time, somebody said, "hey, andrew, you look tall." and he said, "no, my shoes are just dirty." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: whatever. yeah, yeah. that's too long to be a band name.
well, i'm happy you took the choice of what you're doing now because man, you're fantastic. every time i see you, i go, oh my gosh this guy is phenomenal. i mean, you're a fantastic actor. this new film "youth", who directed this one? >> this guy paolo sorrentino, an italian filmmaker. he did "the great beauty," which was out a few years ago. won a foreign language oscar. yeah, he's a beautiful filmmaker. >> jimmy: beautifully shot. and it's just a tricky subject, but it's so great. i mean, great acting. i want to show everyone a clip of paul dano and michael caine. you're in a movie with michael caine. it's called "youth." take a look at this. well deserved. >> i have worked with all the great european and american directors. but i'll be remembered forever for "mr. q." for a -- robot. i had to wear a suit of armor that weighed 200 pounds. you couldn't even see my face, but every five minutes, somebody has to come up and remind me that i did "mr. q." the same way they remind you that you did those simple songs.
